The Texas Department of Public Safety is seeking information in the 1992 murder of 43-year-old Martha Davenport and increased the reward up to $6,000 for any information that leads to an arrest.

The DPS said on Aug. 22, 1992, Davenport was found dead in her home in the Fort Worth suburb Forest Hill. She had been stabbed multiple times in her residence on Old Hickory Trail. There were several potential suspects during the investigation but no arrests were made.

Information can be submitted through the Texas Ranger Cold Case website or by calling the DPS Missing Persons Hotline at 1-800-346-3243 or the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS. All tips are anonymous.

One case from the Texas Ranger Unsolved Crimes Investigation Program is featured each month in an effort to bring attention to these cold cases and gather new investigative leads.

The increased reward will only be paid if the information is received before next month’s featured case is announced.
